mm i loooooove slimming world chips!!

Everyone seems to love slimming world chips and raves about them, I have to admit, no matter how I cook them; par boiling first, microwaving them or just chucking them straight in, I always find them bland, dry and tough.

I have now come to the conclusion if I do need them, I will just weight out and syn bought frozen chips!

I always used to make SW wrong and they were horrible. Ive now discoveredhow to make them delicious!

Cut potato in half and the slice them about 1cm wide ( smaller if you want french fries) if they are thick cut again. Microwave for 10 mins then chuck them in a bowl, spray with frylight, then a fair amount of salt and vinger and pepper if you fancy. Pop onto a fry light baking tray. In the oven about 180o for 20-30 mins. Depends on how crispy you like then. :)

I have found sometimes it's the type of potatoes used for the SW chips....my best advice to scrummy SW chips everytime is to use Rooster red skinned potatoes. Par boil for a few mins then drain/dry and place on a baking tray, spray with Frylight then pop in a pre-heated oven at 200ºc for about 15 - 20 mins... Perfick! Oops, I tend to grind garlic flakes and sea salt over them before popping in the oven. :)

They never look quite like the pictures in the SW magazine do they?

I tend to make wedges instead. First I cook the spuds (unpeeled) in the microwave. I then cut them up into wedge shapes, frylight and cook in my JML.

Admittedly I am only making them for myself (can't imagine making a whole family load) but they do come out delicious especially with a fried egg or two.

i use the red rooster potatoes aswell and leave the skins on they are much nicer than if you use a cheaper spud .. which we did last week and i didnt enjoy them at all!!.
i shove loads of black pepper and chilli flakes over mine before putting them in the oven as well so they are nice and spicy !

I know they all turn out different to whatever potato, some take longer, some better. My best were with massive Cheshire new potatoes in summer.
I par boil 6 mins. Shake.
Place in chip mesh , on baking tray in big fan oven. Salt pepper frylite. 40/40 mins.
Chip mesh rocks. Found on eBay aldi or cheap shops. Let's air circulate £3.
Here's mine on chip mesh.
They are like chippy chips! X
